Let $\tau$ be the topology on $\mathbb{N}$ consisting of the empty set and all sets $X \subset \mathbb{N}$ such that $\mathbb{N} \backslash X$ is finite. Let $\sigma$ be the usual topology on $\mathbb{R}$, and let $\rho$ be the topology on $\mathbb{R}$ consisting of the empty set and all sets of the form $(x, \infty)$ for some real $x$.

(i) Prove that all continuous functions $f:(\mathbb{N}, \tau) \rightarrow(\mathbb{R}, \sigma)$ are constant.

(i) Explain why the formula

$f(z)=\sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty} \frac{1}{(z-n)^{2}}$

defines a function that is analytic on the domain $\mathbb{C} \backslash \mathbb{Z}$. [You need not give full details, but should indicate what results are used.]

Show also that $f(z+1)=f(z)$ for every $z$ such that $f(z)$ is defined.

(ii) Write $\log z$ for $\log r+i \theta$ whenever $z=r e^{i \theta}$ with $r>0$ and $-\pi<\theta \leqslant \pi$. Let $g$ be defined by the formula

$g(z)=f\left(\frac{1}{2 \pi i} \log z\right)$

Prove that $g$ is analytic on $\mathbb{C} \backslash\{0,1\}$.

[Hint: What would be the effect of redefining $\log z$ to be $\log r+i \theta$ when $z=r e^{i \theta}$, $r>0$ and $0 \leqslant \theta<2 \pi$ ?]

(iii) Determine the nature of the singularity of $g$ at $z=1$.

Let $\tau_{1}$ be the collection of all subsets $A \subset \mathbb{N}$ such that $A=\emptyset$ or $\mathbb{N} \backslash A$ is finite. Let $\tau_{2}$ be the collection of all subsets of $\mathbb{N}$ of the form $I_{n}=\{n, n+1, n+2, \ldots\}$, together with the empty set. Prove that $\tau_{1}$ and $\tau_{2}$ are both topologies on $\mathbb{N}$.

Show that a function $f$ from the topological space $\left(\mathbb{N}, \tau_{1}\right)$ to the topological space $\left(\mathbb{N}, \tau_{2}\right)$ is continuous if and only if one of the following alternatives holds:

You may use the addition formulae $\sin \alpha+\sin \beta=2 \sin \left(\frac{\alpha+\beta}{2}\right) \cos \left(\frac{\alpha-\beta}{2}\right)$ and $\cos \alpha+\cos \beta=2 \cos \left(\frac{\alpha+\beta}{2}\right) \cos \left(\frac{\alpha-\beta}{2}\right)$.]

(d) Hence, or otherwise, determine for every real $t$ the number of $z$ (counted with multiplicity) such that $|z|<1$ and $p(z)=t$. (You need not give rigorous justifications for your calculations.)

(a) Given a topology $\mathcal{T}$ on $X$, a collection $\mathcal{B} \subseteq \mathcal{T}$ is called a basis for $\mathcal{T}$ if every non-empty set in $\mathcal{T}$ is a union of sets in $\mathcal{B}$. Prove that a collection $\mathcal{B}$ is a basis for some topology if it satisfies:

(ii) if $x \in B_{1} \cap B_{2}$ for two sets $B_{1}$ and $B_{2}$ in $\mathcal{B}$, then there is a set $B \in \mathcal{B}$ with $x \in B \subset B_{1} \cap B_{2}$.

A function $f$ is said to be analytic at $\infty$ if there exists a real number $r>0$ such that $f$ is analytic for $|z|>r$ and $\lim _{z \rightarrow 0} f(1 / z)$ is finite (i.e. $f(1 / z)$ has a removable singularity at $z=0)$. $f$ is said to have a pole at $\infty$ if $f(1 / z)$ has a pole at $z=0$. Suppose that $f$ is a meromorphic function on the extended plane $\mathbb{C}_{\infty}$, that is, $f$ is analytic at each point of $\mathbb{C}_{\infty}$ except for poles.

(a) Show that if $f$ has a pole at $z=\infty$, then there exists $r>0$ such that $f(z)$ has no poles for $r<|z|<\infty$.

(b) Show that the number of poles of $f$ is finite.

(c) By considering the Laurent expansions around the poles show that $f$ is in fact a rational function, i.e. of the form $p / q$, where $p$ and $q$ are polynomials.

(d) Deduce that the only bijective meromorphic maps of $\mathbb{C}_{\infty}$ onto itself are the Möbius maps.

Define the terms connected and path connected for a topological space. If a topological space $X$ is path connected, prove that it is connected.

Consider the following subsets of $\mathbb{R}^{2}$ :

Let $f(z)$ be analytic in the $\operatorname{disc}|z|. Assume the formula

$f^{\prime}\left(z_{0}\right)=\frac{1}{2 \pi i} \int_{|z|=r} \frac{f(z) d z}{\left(z-z_{0}\right)^{2}}, \quad 0 \leqslant\left|z_{0}\right|

By combining this formula with a complex conjugate version of Cauchy's Theorem, namely

$0=\int_{|z|=r} \overline{f(z)} d \bar{z},$

prove that

$f^{\prime}(0)=\frac{1}{\pi r} \int_{0}^{2 \pi} u(\theta) e^{-i \theta} d \theta$

where $u(\theta)$ is the real part of $f\left(r e^{i \theta}\right)$.

Let $\Delta^{*}=\{z: 0<|z| be a punctured disc, and $f$ an analytic function on $\Delta^{*}$. What does it mean to say that $f$ has the origin as (i) a removable singularity, (ii) a pole, and (iii) an essential singularity? State criteria for (i), (ii), (iii) to occur, in terms of the Laurent series for $f$ at 0 .

Suppose now that the origin is an essential singularity for $f$. Given any $w \in \mathbb{C}$, show that there exists a sequence $\left(z_{n}\right)$ of points in $\Delta^{*}$ such that $z_{n} \rightarrow 0$ and $f\left(z_{n}\right) \rightarrow w$. [You may assume the fact that an isolated singularity is removable if the function is bounded in some open neighbourhood of the singularity.]

State the Open Mapping Theorem. Prove that if $f$ is analytic and injective on $\Delta^{*}$, then the origin cannot be an essential singularity. By applying this to the function $g(1 / z)$, or otherwise, deduce that if $g$ is an injective analytic function on $\mathbb{C}$, then $g$ is linear of the form $a z+b$, for some non-zero complex number $a$. [Here, you may assume that $g$ injective implies that its derivative $g^{\prime}$ is nowhere vanishing.]
